use and abuse of shadows :)

Here is something that bothers me.

My application icons don't seem to have a consistent light source,
some of them have light coming from directly in front but others
seem to have the light coming down from above.

Either way, i wish they could be more consistent.

Ive included another small screen shot, in this picture the foot icon
has a bottom shadow but the gimp, gnome-terminal, gaim, rhythmbox, emacs
and logout icons all have drop shadows. Then we have the Home icon, as
well as the bluefish, mozilla, evolution, xchat, and gconf icons that
have no shadow at all.

What is the proper way to draw shadows?
