The Nun Horror Movie- Art Study+ Freewrite

in nsfw •  last month


Hello guys! Yesterday I went to watch the Nun movie in the cinema ^^ I really enjoyed it, but I'm no horror movie expert. In fact I started watching horror movies only recently, so I actually don't know about the cliche jump scares or other scares. I do feel that the movie didn't deliver the full origin story, I really wish it focused much more on the background story.

Update: I removed some personal parts :)

They actually showed a cool mysterious old book with ancient strips and then they proceeded by showing only a couple of pages! I was dissapointed for that as the few pages they did show looked really awesome. I actually had a lovecraftian feel several times throughout the movie, but I can't pinpoint the reason why.

I'll avoid spoiling, but there isn't much to spoil really. Personally I loved the visuals of the movie the most. I'll definitely look for the movie's concept art and I hope there will be a book like "The Art of the Nun" :D

So what I mean is the compositions of the scenes were beautiful. An amazing balance of light and dark areas, front details versus background. The camera angles were always unique and constantly changing, like front view, aerial view and close ups. My favorite scene is the big prayer scene. I was a bit sad about the reveal, opposite would have been much cooler.

Overall the movie left a strong impressions on me, but I have a lot more questions. I loved the set and costume design and all of the details. The cover image of this post is one of my favorite scenes in the movie. You can actually see it in the longer trailer, which I used for reference. However, I avoid watching trailers as they have way too many spoilers now. There is another scene, the prayer one that I want to also do a study of in the future.

Here is the process gif. The study took me around an hour to draw. I used a textured chalk brush for the background and a non textured one for the character. I kept the rough, gritty feel of the painting on purpose.


Also I forgot to mention that the movie has very minimal blood.

This post is not a review of the movie Nun, rather my biased experience. I haven't watched the rest of the movies either, except the Conjuring 2. I agree with the popular opinion that this movie's storytelling could have been much better and more interesting. However, I love the atmosphere and visual part of the film. This post is also unedited just my raw thoughts. I will edit and remove more private info right before the post's payout :)

Thank you for reading!

Have you seen the movie? And what is your favorite horror movie?

Thank you :D This light/dark contrast is constantly used in the movie in many ways.
I actually wish this was a story movie, a thriller and not horror xD
