probably best in the custom painting section, but i will still help you out...

flourescent yellow looks great with a lot of things....

If you want bright, go orange, black, silver, yellow

Darker, go Purple, orange, yellow.....

Baby blue and orange and yellow look good together....

just noticed there was a PAINTING board on this site, but since this one is already here, i'll just stay here.

Is it possible to do designs and stuff with spray paint? how do people do it?

Pretty much any design in a body is masked. Anything goes, it can be as simple as vinyl pre-cut masks that you can buy at your LHS or if you feel creative, you can cut the masks out of liquid mask that covers the entire inside of your body.

Thats more of a technique for getting different textures. You would still need to design and mask something out.
Good Luck! Also, check out cfxPaintworks.com

Since you're pretty much still a noob. I would just do a single color. Sometimes single colors look better than some designs.
