I have graphed this in 3 steps to try and show you pictorially how it is done.

https://www.desmos.com/calculator/aihasozfoa

Only y=x^3 is displayed first.

then click on the second circle to show y=-x^3

now y=|x^3| is a combination of theses because y must be positive.

If you now display y=|x^3| you will see that the graph looks a bit like a concave up parabola.
