Why is my file size so big?

I've noticed that my latest illustrations have significantly larger file sizes than my older ones. They're taking up so much of my storage despite being unfinished pieces of work.


For example: one of my older illustrations is 45.8 MB but my latest WIP is 546.7 MB. 

I have less layers on my new illustration (WIP has only 3 layers and old drawing has 10 layers)
, both have the same dimensions (2100 x 2100) same ppi (72), and I only used live oil paint brushes for both. 

I wonder if it from the latest updates that increased the file sizes. Because of the dang cloud sync feature, WIP lags so much and takes forever to load. I go offline to work but whenever my device connects to the internet, the app takes forever to load because of the syncing.


Is there anyway for me to cut down on file size (other than altering dimension sizes)?
