New Project - Woodblock Map of Pennsic

I have begun the design for a new woodblock project – a map of Pennsic.  I intend for it to be very detailed and include battle scenes, archers, royal encampments and more.  I am trying to make it in the style of Sebastian Munster.  I do not know how to draw, so it is difficult for me to get it to look right.

Here is a very early draft.  I have left in the under layer, which is an official map of Pennsic.  I am getting the location details from this map, and currently, I am debating whether or not to include the top chunk of parking in the outline or not.  If I leave it in, I will just pretend it is more camping space, and fill it with tents.  The original size I am working on is 20×34 inches at 300 dpi.  I will have to shrink this down to around 6-8″ wide or so for the final map.  I still have to figure out if I am putting in detail that is too small.
