My understanding is that it is a collection of functions that draw certain shapes or images on the screen and translates them in certain ways.
well, what you describe would be a graphics engine... a "game engine" would include that, as well as functions/classes for handling input (keyboard/mouse/whatever) and physics (collision detection, movement)... maybe even game logic.
since you want to program your own, you can put in/leave out anything you like...
