Default Pencils and Photoshop

So, as I have begun to dabble in the art of using *gasp* using Photoshop to color and shade, I have entered a problem:
My art lacks depth. I have seen many artists shade behind the lines they have previously drawn, in/outside of Photoshop.
How does one do this without using layers?

Wow thats a tuff question. Were to start....

When painting using tradional mediums, people will sometimes work from "back to front" or "dark to light" when using acrylics or oils (with watercolors its light to dark) which means building layers of paint up on top of a dried layer.

Photoshop's layers are great at replicating that way of painting. I think you should definetely look into playing with layers and the way they work because the benefits are endless. To "paint" behind what you want, set the work you want to paint behind on a new layer and set that layer to multiply or darken.

Give it ago if you haven't, if you want any specific help with your work, you should put some up in the WIP thread.

When I saw the bad-ass poster design for the upcoming movie The Expendables, I just had to open up Photoshop and have a go at recreating it. Follow this step by step guide on how to create the menacing winged skull design for yourself
