    It is not good as well.

    "It is not good as well." "It is also not good."

    The sentences are wrong or unnatural to you? Thank you so much.

    Yes, it's both unnatural and wrong.

    Re: It is not good as well.

    How about, "It's not good either", or "Neither is it good".

    Re: It is not good as well.

    A: This painting is terrible. That one is not good at all.
    B: What about this one?
    A: It is also not good.

    It's possible to hear that, but it's not as common or as natural as other ways to say it.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
