You should often check the Graphics Job Board and see what is on demand.
You seem to be good at illustration. Try Logo design, creating Brochures, Flyer design. and designing Infographics. May I suggest that you design more than a handful of pieces on these categories then add them to your portfolio. If you already have Flyer designs on your portfolio, clients will see that you have the skills to work on his Flyer project.

Some employers might ask also language competence, or as the above says you can go ahead and track down the actual trend for your category. IMHO, improving someone's English would skyrocket his/her chances to get a job here, and also another advice is to keep your profile overview as simple as possible, 300 words particularly seems to be a decent threshold.
Welcome to Upwork Sajid!
You can find valuable information in the Getting Started as a Freelancer section of the Hep Center. I also advise reading the best practice advice shared by other users in following threads:
with 7 years experience, you should probably raise your rate.
try various styles of cover letters. make them unique, humorous if possible. make your cover letters stand out from the rest.
Raise your rate so people don't think you're a beginner at graphics and remove the bad test scores. Also work to improve those other scores that you have. Also send a sample of your best work with every application. You can choose to attach one file so make sure you do and it's applies to the job you are applying to.
