What's the difference between "it looks as if..." and 'it looks like if..." ?
Are they both correct ? If so, is there a special use of them ?
Thanks for helping me !

The first one is correct.
You can say
"It looks as if it had been painted"
"It looks as if he's ready to go"
So : it looks as if + sentence
"It looks like a new one"
"It looks like someone had painted it"
So : it looks like + noun or sentence (but no "if")
