--Bruce, I really appreciate your handwriting.
--Well, it's not good enough.
Does the response sound natural to native ears?
Thank you in advance.
Thank you very much, Albeit.
Then, if we answered 'Thanks a lot. But it's still not good enough.' would it sound better?
Thank you again.

I think both of these are perfectly fine and ordinary ways to complain about the quality of something.
"I have been trying to make it better, but it's still not good enough."
"I had hoped this would do, but it's not good enough."
It's more the whole context.
I'm having trouble imagining the plot. What does it even mean for someone to "appreciate" someone else's handwriting?
