I can't do any spriting right now because I'm in the unfortunate phase between an old PC with Paint and a new Mac with Photoshop (one of these days I'm gonna get a tablet...), but when I did sprite on Paint, I always used the base colors as a, well, basis, and then fiddled around with the colors until I found one appropriate for the sprite. Or I just eyedropped it from the reference artwork. Otherwise, I only ever use those default colors for sketch linework or funky backgrounds for turning it transparent (thanks, Iaza!).
