Leonardo, the distracted, uncommitted artist, easily lost interest in his work, leaving the majority of his pieces unfinished. Michelangelo was also an avid give-up-er, though not to the unprofessional extent of Leonardo, which is one of the reasons Michelangelo tended to get more attention from people who paid for art, as Michelangelo was more reliable.
