Leonardo da Vinci is one of the most relatable characters in history because we know how fucking lazy he was. He never finished anything, he was constantly making excuses why he didn’t finish commissions on time.
Him and Michelangelo hated each other apparently. Young Mike came up to him at a party and was like hey would you look at my sketchbook I’m a big fan and he was like “bitch i’m famous”
I just finished a book on the Borgias, and Leonardo shows up when he decides painting sucks he’s done with painting, he’s going to be a military engineer now. So Cesare Borgia hires him to design siege equipment but absolutely none of it works. Inspiring.
Michelangelo did get this good “fuck you, you can’t even make a horse sculpture” jab in though
