Unhappy Dodge & Burn confusion

Hello friends,
I am very new into beauty retouching and learning from internet.
I am not getting any better tutorial about Dodging & Burning that shows simple ways of HOW, WHERE & HOW MUCH D & B can be done on any image.

I have read this article but still I am very confused and also i couldn't achieve result I want as a final version.

It would be great if you guys can provide any great video or articles about D&B.

Thank you,

You're asking for a paint by numbers, and it it doesn't exist. It's also impractical. This is a problem for anyone coming from a photography background. You may not be comfortable with basic illustration principles, and retouching work has more in common with them. You can eventually overcome that.

Beyond the basic mechanics, you would look for specific results. You choose how much and where to match that result. You mostly learn to avoid doing any more than absolutely necessary, because any work applied to the image is an opportunity to screw something up. The work that you do apply should simply follow what you're trying to achieve.

As to why we need to apply it, there's no real reason. People simply found that given the available tools, this provided a reasonable degree of control over the image that was not easily achievable without it.
