Leggy vs. Perfect seedlings

I'm searching for some photos of leggy plants and what the ideal seedling would look like. This is our first time raising seedlings (tomato & peppers). If anyone has photos of good and bad I'd love to see them.

No photos, but I can tell you about them. A leggy Tomato and pepper will have a weak thin stem with lots of space between the leaves and branches. It just looks weak. A perfect Tomato or pepper plant will have a thick stem It will be compact and bushy and the branches will be closer together.
