Some information please

I just have a question regarding game programming, as it is something I plan to do. I get kinda lost between animation and C++, how they co-exist with one another.

Can you create objects such as a character, with shape, lighting and whatnot with code alone?

I've been into this programming stuff for about a month now, and so far have not seen any reference that it is possible. lol call me a noob, but well, thats what I am. Any light on this subject would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

I'm using SDL for animation. Yes it is possible from code alone, so far i've only being using it to make a particles system but it is possible to make a game. I'll be making 1 later in the year.
How you do it is to make a render function which links the code to the system screen refresh rate (typically 60Hz.), so the code updates 60 times a second and using for, while and if loops you update the colours of the pixels and draw out what you want.

Hope this explains it for you
