This isn't going to work. You're only filling the first third of the
memory area.

How about (untested):

// malloc() can return NULL: you need to test the result
// g_malloc() cannot fail
char *p = g_malloc(sizeX * sizeY * 3);
char *q;
int i;

// i loops for number of pixels
// q loops pointing at each RGB triplet in turn
for (q = p, i = 0; i < sizeX * sizeY; i++, q += 3)
 q[0] = q[1] = q[2] = pixel_value;

// or alternatively in this special case
memset( p, sizeX * sizeY * 3, pixel_value )
