Why is it not "Regarde ce dessin, il est superbe"

As per the Video "il/s or elle/s" is the correct pronoun to be used when talking about specific thing/s

This relates to:
C'est = It is -

Bonjour Anish,
Je pense que cela au-dessous expliquera votre question.
Regarde ce dessin, c'est superbe!
Look at this drawing, it's superb!
C'est bleu.
It's blue.
Note that to describe things in general in French, you can use the simple expression c'est ('it is/this is'), followed by an adjective (describing word).
Peut-être l'adjectif qui suit serait la raison. «ce dessin» est une chose en général au contraire d'«un dessin de Monet» ce qui serait plus exact.
J'espère que ma réponse vous aidera.
bonne journée,

Bonjour Anish and Ron!

Actually here I agree with Anish : "il est superbe" would indeed be better here, as this is a specific drawing you have already mentioned.

I've now changed this example to better fit this lesson :)

Merci beaucoup et à bientôt !
