```What do you mean when you ask to "plot" a sequence of complex functions?
Even what it means to "plot" a single complex function is unclear!  I
presume you are referring to a function from the complex numbers to the
complex numbers, such as is given by f(z) = z^3.  It is impossible to
directly visualize the graph of this function, since that would require
2*2 = 4 real dimensions.  Of course there are various indirect ways to
get at visualizing such a function, such as drawing various curves in
one plane and then showing their images in another plane next to that.
Or, you could draw a 3-dimensional plot of the real part of f(z) as a
function of z along with another 3D plot of the imaginary part of f(z)
as a function of z.
