Thinking of painting my truck. i need some suggestions

i just bought a 91 ford ranger for my first vehicle. i am still in HS and need to do my senior project. it needs to be 20 hours of work but that dont matter. anyways i was thinking of going cheap and rattle canning it. im stuck in between a snow camo look or all black but i need tips, suggestions, anything.

You could spend 20 hours on sanding/prep/body work... then spray it flat black.

research google. there is a website out there that has wonderful camo patterns for oyur vehicle and has something like 50 different patterns ranging from snow camo to duck blind to desert to vietnam. its sick. i say camo cuz if youre gonna do it might as well enjoy it and flat black sucks when you get bird poop or try to wax because it doesnt stay flat black

If your wasting all that time doing prep work, why not give it a decent paint job?
