- Michelangelo had no patience for painting detailed backgrounds.
- Leonardo was unorganized and a huge procrastinator; a lot of his commissions went unfinished and his inability to meet expected deadlines at one point had him avoiding a commissioner’s hometown.
- Leonardo, being the older of the two arguably equally talented artists, belittled Michelangelo (most likely out of jealousy), advising a certain “anatomical painter” in the privacy of his personal notebooks not to make his figures too gnarled with muscles, lest they resemble a “sack of walnuts”.
- The majority of celebrated Renaissance art pieces are essentially Biblical and historical fanart; unoriginal subject material with a stylized twist.
Everyone has their artistic faults and there’s no such thing as being above improvement. You’re doing great.
