In my how to storyboard for beginners tutorial, I walk through my process for sketching thumbnails in Procreate. Thumbnailing is a quick, rough sketching stage in storyboarding where you just want to try and get your ideas down on paper.

Initial sketching practices and how you can import and use a thumbnail template in Procreate to help with the thumbnailing process. I also walk through the importance of beginning the storyboarding process with rough sketches to help you establish the timeline or sequence of the story you want to bring to life. I also walk through pacing or the speed of action, which is determined by the number of storyboards reflecting points in the overall story. Lastly, I walk through how you can play with the composition of your storyboards to set up more interesting scenes.
