You need to get the graphicaddress (and close with [/img]), not a site that contains the picture. Dunno how to get that on google drive, if I had to fix it, i would download it and then upload it to an imagehosting site.
Those pics are tiny.

Updated with descriptions.
Characters are made with a defining form and function of art, and reflect their power.

kaempfer was referring to imgur or imgbb. It is better if you can embed your pictures here.

Yeah, try using imgur or the like.

Also, I can't say I made out a lot of stuff from your artwork, but... yeah, you might wanna try and work on your style of pixelart. As it is now, the artworks leave a lot to be desired. The character silhouttes are rather unclear and the choice of color behind them seems bizzare. I'd recommend hitting a few tutorials on how to draw pixelart. People like Mortmort on youtube are a good place to start

Checked the channel... Though he know basics, its works look lame and unoriginal.
Silohuettes are to be broken for consistency/avoid blot.
I had tested another Artwork like these, looks pretty fine after x2 res and a filter.
Art is for a Chess like game, needs easily diferentiable forms.

I... see what you mean. Still, I would recommend you take a look at some tutorials on both pixelart as well as character design. The designs that you submitted just now are very unclear, messy and overall amatuerish, which is probably not a good outlook for anything, especially for a game, where your first attention "hook" has to be the look and graphic design and such.

Also, I'm not exactly sure what you mean by this:
Silohuettes are to be broken for consistency/avoid blot.

'Les your entire game shares the same aesthetic, there's no real reason for your characters (at least, I assume that's what they are) to look the way that they do. That and also I do not grasp the concept of a blot in a digital artwork, where any accidental marks can be instantly removed with an undo button.

Alright, thank you. I'm overdrawing an update in few days.
Blot as in getting clumps of same color together, like 2 pieces that are 2 pixels apart, but outlined black they blot together.
Thanks for the picture edition.
Hmm, I did try to mark that leg as such more clearly.
