I really like visuals in a game. Sometimes that means drawing something, or finding art on deviant art or pinterest etc.
I recently got a bunch of cheap copic marker knockoffs (the real things are way to spendy for me). My wife has an elven ranger so I grabbed a lineart from deviantart, printed it, and colored it. It is fun to have character art. While I wish I could draw it, this is a close second. A different activity.
