Tilda Swinton

For the facebook Group Caricaturama Showdown 3000
I have to blame to group's host, Ariel Medel, for is rendition of Tilda Swinton as "ET." After that, I can't look at her picture without thinking of ET. So when I picked up a crayon to start sketching, what color did I unconsciously choose? You guessed it!
Sketch in progress:

The sketch as it currently stands:

For those unfamiliar with the actress, she was in that movie "The Barnacles of Chronic Insomnia" or something like that. Here are a couple of the photos I used for reference:

I joined the Facebook Group "Caricaturama Showdown 3000" - each week they select a celebrity and everyone submits caricatures.
Here are my submissions:
