Nice to hear a technique like this suggested by a skilled pixel artist -- I'm sure many folks might feel like such a thing is 'cheating' in a sense, but really, studying how pixels actually cluster from natural subjects sounds like a great technique.
I'm offering free pixel-art mentorship for promising pixel artists. For details, click here.
