When you "storyboard" the way a figure or figures for a scientific manuscript should look, or need to look, to make your point, you are on a very slippery slope.
It sets up a situation where you need the data to come out a particular way to fit the story you want to tell.
This leads to all kinds of bad shenanigans. From outright fakery to re-running experiments until you get it to look the way you want.
Story boarding is for telling fictional stories.
Science is for telling non-fiction stories.
These are created after the fact. After the data are collected. With no need for storyboarding the narrative in advance.
