With more complex images you get more artifacts, although there tend to be less of those than normal. In any case, let's take a look at the plugin: Distance -- i

MODERATORS NOTE: this plugin may not be fully compatible with paint.net v4 I'd like to introduce a new plug-in I call "Mosaic Maniac Collage Paint" This is an early release and I still know of a couple of bugs, but do let me know if you find some.
