Frequently Asked Questions



questions? common ones are answered here

I submitted a request. Now what?

After your submit your request, the most relevant artists for the job are notified so they can review your request and respond with their individual offers.
On average, most requests receive about 5 or 6 offers.

You can view & compare offer responses descriptions, prices, etc. all from your dashboard.

Pro tip: we recommend waiting 24 - 36 hours before placing an order to give the artists sufficient time to view & respond to your request.

How much does it cost?

The pricing varies on numerous factors like size, subjects, as well as by artist.  
When you submit a request, you specify what your budget range is, to ensure you are only receiving offers back within your price range.

For more info, we recommend seeing our How It Works guide.

How long will it take for my art to be finished & shipped?

After you submit a request, each offer made to you will include a "Completion Date", as determined by the artist. After the painting is completed, it may take 3 to 5 business days for shipping.
For international shipping, it may take up to 14 days.

Can I communicate with the artist back-and-forth?

The request you submit generally contains all the information components necessary for our artists to deliver a masterpiece back to you - multiple image uploads, free-form text, material specifications, and more. Once you submit a request, that's it - you cannot add/remove/edit info.
Of course, the offers you get back come directly from artists personally responding to your request, so choose the artist you feel is best. Once the artist begins, there is no way to directly contact them to make modifications, but you can email us for special requests: support@requiren.com

Can I submit requests containing nudity?

How much does it cost?

Since each painting is one-of-a-kind and made just for you, it depends by size, complexity, and the artist.

When you submit a request, you will enter your price range so the painting remains within your budget. Then, each artist will respond with their total price so you can easily compare side by side.

Each painting you commission on Requiren is hand-painted by a professional artist, with pricing beginning at $75.
Our maximum pricing is $20,000 for high-end commissions, which we recommend you work with our curators.

- On average, a standard & basic portrait of 1 subject is $85-$95
- On average, a standard portrait of 2 or more subjects is $120+

Almost your entire purchase goes directly to the artist, for their expertise, time, and materials.

How long does it take?

After you submit a request, each offer made to you by artists will include their "Completion Date", which tells you when the painting will be finished.

On average, it may take an artist 5 - 8 days to complete your soon-to-be masterpiece! Plus, 3 days for shipping (USA) and 7 days or more for international.

What else?

Have fun with it!

Commissioning art is a wonderful thing that has been practiced for centuries - we're simply bringing it to the modern day with technology!

When putting in a request, you can keep it simple by uploading your images and asking it to be painted as-is, or you can get creative and say something like "Take this picture of me and draw me riding a T-Rex into a battle ground with a Samauri sword in my right hand and a trumpet in my left hand".

It's really up to you - our artists will gladly create anything!
