Default Programming + Art = Game?

Okay, so here's where I stand. I'm 21 and have wanted to make games for about five years but have only recently started doing so. I always thought there wasn't a future in it for an east coast kid and that I didn't have what it takes but now I'm going for it with all my heart and don't care what happens. I've been learning C++ and Blender, because they're both free and I'm poor. The thing I was wondering was how to put the programming together with the art to make a game. Like, I can make a model and give it a walk cycle and build worlds and stuff but how do I actually program that in a game. Like, how do you fuse art with the programming to make the actual game. Any refrences or sites would be great. Thanks.

If you have been studying c++ you notice that there is a lot to be added to make a full 3D game. My suggestion would be to start our with OGRE. it has a rather simple interface and lots of help available. The documentation is superb as well. The best part is, it's free. It is a graphical engine for your models. It's not the best out there but it is a great place to start. It also allows for the easy addition of other engines such as physics, video, AI, ect...
