What is the simplest way of printing a map as a reference so I can create a hand-drawn map in its place?

I am an artist and new to interactive map-making.  I want to create a custom map to use as a layer, but I want to do it in the most efficient, tech-savy way.  So, my questions are:


Is there a way to download and print the base layer so that I draw accurate proportions, etc?

Is there a site where I can find image specifics, pixel dimension recommendations, format, size?

Is there potentially a step-by-step guide for doing what I would like to do?


To recap, I want to take the world map that is in Arc GIS, print it and design my own map based on those dimensions.  I then want to scan in my drawing and apply that to my map as a layer.


I appreciate any help or links!  Thank you!
